AllMusic Review by

EMI-Capitol Special Markets' Sax for Christmas is an entertaining collection of laid-back, polished pop instrumental interpretations of Christmas carols like "Joy to the World," "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," "O Come All Ye Faithful," "We Three Kings," "Silent Night," "The Holly and the Ivy" and "Good King Wenceslas." There isn't much variety on the album -- each track has the same slick, synthesized instrumental backup and lush sax leads -- but anyone who enjoys Kenny G or smooth jazz in that style should enjoy Sax for Christmas.
